Writer App Flowstate Will Delete All Your Work If You Stop Typing

This writer app erases everything if you stop typing. Available for iOS and Android devices, the Flowstate app by Overman encourages users not to self-edit and let the initial creation stand with a terrifying but effective incentive.

The writing and note-taking tool "is a response to the amphetanminic digital age" as it aims to put writers into a 'flow state' or get them into the zone and minimize distractions.

First, you pick a font and time on the writer app. Once the session begins, you have to have to remain in a flow and not stop for more than 5 seconds or else all your progress will be deleted. The only way to save your work is to keep writing until the session ends.
